Sid Meir’s Civilization is one of the most popular strategy games around for the PC. It’s great mainly because of how in-depth the game is. The player balances an economy, population, and wealth all while defending as well as warring with other civilizations to make sure your civilization is the greatest of all. Now take that and put it on facebook and you have something interesting.
2K Games is working on Civilization World which seems like an appropriate name given the platform. Facebook will add a social aspect that brings the experience to another level. Granted, its a dumbed down version of the game so no fancy graphics, however, you can cooperate or play against friends throughout the game without investing too much time. Definitely seems like something I’m willing to try out.
